Not like a cold reboot, but that's pretty much what it accomplishes.
>Anti-personnel mine only explodes when you step off of it.
Some do, some don't, depending on the model.
>Rack the slide after having held someone at gunpoint for minutes.
Cuz they're a fag and didn't have a round chambered beforehand, but it's for the intimidation factor.
Do some homework faggot, the page explains how a mine kills you, not the exact mechanic of activation for every APM ever produced, of which the designs have varied greatly.
An AED can actually restart a fully-stopped heart. Will it do it 100% of the time? Fuck no. But it is one of its intended uses.
Just because its PRIMARY use is to correct fibrillations doesn't mean it's the ONLY use it has.
Well I'm no researcher of military gear catalogs. But I believe the Mythbusters have good people for that. And those came up zilch when looking for a mine, current or historic, that activates when the pressure is removed from the sensor. It's just Hollywood.
Find a specific model and I will eat my words.
Not same guy but "restart" isn't the best term. A an AED or monitor can only electrically correct a "shockable" rhythm being VTAC, VFIB, or unstable brady or tachydysrhythmias. If the person is in cardiac arrest with either asystole(lack of electrical activity) or PEA(electrical activity without mechanical capture) the AED will not advise a shock. An AED's only use is the correction of correctable cardiac arrythmias.
Yeah I fucked that up slightly.
You are absolutely correct on an AED. I'm not really sure why I jumped from "defibrillator" to "AED".
A manually-operated defibrillator, the ones in hospitals with the paddles, can restart a fully stopped heart (either PEA or asystole). Well, providing luck and no extenuating injuries exist.
>car doors stop bullets
They won't even stop .22lr at 100m unless it hits the hinge or window motor.
>people can have a 30min indoor firefight with rifles and still converse normally during and after without wearing earpro
>all explosives throw a humongous fireball
No actual explosive throws any kind of fireball, because it's an explosion not a combustion. That's done as movie FX with a water bottle full of gasoline taped to the explosive.
>people can be within 100ft of massive explosions, get tossed 30yds, and get up like it's nothing
If you're close enough to an explosion for the shockwave to actually pick you up you will be dead from overpressure injuries before the dust settles, immediately rendered unconscious from major brain trauma, and probably turned into swiss cheese from secondary fragmentation/flying debris
This is not true and the procedure is medically not indicated. There's articles, but they're paywalled. It's common knowledge among medical professionals though.
The anecdotes about recovery from asystole are likely just cases of unnoticeable VFIB.
Even though it's not medically indicated everybody tries anyway, because it's better to do "something" than immediately call it. And, occasionally, it works (whether or not that'd due to unnoticed vfib I don't know).
The hospital I worked at would fucking paddle anybody and everybody that didn't have a perfectly normal heartbeat. And yeah, that killed a few people that might have otherwise survived.
Hell I watched them paddle someone that'd gotten their chest run through with a telephone pole and didn't even have a heart (or lungs or liver or about a foot of spine) left.
PDs have started buying bullet resistant cruisers. Not sure if they will stop a rifle slug, me thinks not. But handguns will not go through and the officers are instructed to take cover behind their car doors.
S-Mine is a great example of that. Doesn't make much sense for it to try and shoot up the moment it has pressure, it needs 7lbs to trigger, than when it's released it'll shoot up and explode.
Really though there is no specific model for most other mines because it all depends on the fuses. Some fuses were pressure fired, some were pressure release toggles, (what we're talking about) there's also piezoelectric fuses, spring striker fuses, and several other types I can't think of off the top my head.
Russians had a standard fuse well for most of their mines by the way, so you could stack up AT mines behind a door and have a striker fuse attached to a string.
Usually though the pressure toggle type is a binary thing, they go off if you release the pressure so stepping on one when it's in the "on" state wouldn't matter. (don't advise it though)
Don't mean to sound harsh, but a manually operated defibrilator won't have an effect on PEA or asystole for the reason that those aren't electrically correctable rhythms. PEA usually manifests in the form of bradycardic sinus rhythms or sinus rhythms with higher degree heart blocks which are recoverable rhythms if mechanical capture can be attained, so the course of action would be to continue or initiate CPR rather than shock. Asystole is unshockable for the fact that no rhythm exists to shock. Defibrilation is unsynchronized cardioversion, so you rhythm must be something you can cardiovert. The procedure for asystole is again CPR in conjunction with various medications like epi or atropine for instance.
Well, officers have been instructed to take cover behind their car doors since officers drove Model A's.
Also, how many PD's have a 100% compliant vehicle fleet? I know my city's not got a single one other than their already-armored Bearcats, and we're a major metro with lots of money.
I'd be willing to bet that if you made a habit of shooting cruiser doors 95% of them would be fully penetrated by a .380.
I'm >>28685214 by the way.
Also I want to add on to my post that while all of that is true, your vast majority of mines are detonated instantly with pressure. That shit with the movies is pretty rare because it doesn't really make sense to have a mine that does that unless you're deliberately fucking with the enemy.

Well at least they almost got the last one right.
I thought it was 7lbs, but that makes sense because 15lbs is roughly 7kg so maybe that's what I was thinking.
As for naming a fuse, I can't think of the Russian designation off-hand but I know there's one in US inventory called the "M5 FD". I always heard it called a "mousetrap fuse"
Yes. Quite a few.
The M9 has a safety, which also functions as a decocker.
Sig, Beretta, the old S&W boat anchors, XD's, and probably a dozen others. Not everybody carries a Glock or M&P.
I'm >>28685354 again
I just thought of one that perfectly fits the bill of what we're talking about: the M142 FD, can be a string fuse, pressure release fuse, and a plain pressure fuse.
So yeah, there's one there, but it still doesn't truly function like in the movies.
>pull dagger out of your sleeve

Also those retarded whiffing noises any time anyone swings a melee weapon regardless how slowly they swing it.
>implying service pistol
That is not an area denial weapon, but a safeguard against tampering. You put it under a box you think the enemy will lift, or under one of the mines in your mine field. It triggers when pressure is released. But if you find it dug into the ground with that configuration it just means the field was laid down by morons who didn't know what they were doing.
Did not know about this channel. Thanks mang
>sig with manual safety
Yep. At least one department near me carries the SAO P220, which has a manual safety. Also the P226 Elite, X-Five, and X-Six have the option of a manual safety on the DA/SA models.
There are also approximately 200 LEA's nationwide that issue an XD.
So what about the Chevy Impala, which is like the #2 most produced police car in the world?
And how did we get off track from "all car doors in movies stop bullets" to "well these relatively recent special-order purpose built police cars MIGHT have handgun-rated ballistic protection in them, if the department chose to order that package"?
I love the movie Sorcerer (1977) to no end, but good god does that opening scene with the silenced revolver shot annoy me
Is that the earliest example of a literal "pew pew" sound effect in film for a silenced gun?
Actual epi pens are not preferable due to the concentration and route of administration. For cardiac arrest it's 1mg IV or IO for both 1:1000 and 1:10000.The dose remains the same although the volume and concentration administered is different. There is no max dose for epi when used for cardiac arrest for the reason that epi hasn't actually been definitively proven to aid in resuscitative efforts. For sites best practice is to avoid working for an IV in a circulatory compromised patient since the hypovolemic or distributive lack of fluids make vein identification and spearing difficult, so an IO to the humeral head of proximal tibia is preferred, although the military field environment may advocate the sternal body in the case of a FAST1. Those aren't preferred in the civilian environment due to the difficulty of infusion through the bone without a pressure infuser.

Just pause on some.

A legit strategy of the time. There have been probably a dozen different ways to hold a flashlight in your off hand that've been "oper8r approved" over the last 70 years.
Granted they're all outclassed by a weapon-mounted strobing light (since people shoot at lights and that light is normally directly in front of your chest the strobing part is a -really- good idea) these days, but weapon-mounted lights prior to about 1993 sucked dick.
Some niggas will rack the slide despite one already being in the chamber and let one fall out to be intimidating. So if you ever get caught at gunpoint by some wannabe hardass just say "I don't believe that's a real gun/I don't believe you that it's loaded" they'll rack it and one will fall out. Just continue saying that until the gun is unloaded then simply walk away as they scramble to reload their mag.
You would have a stroke if you watched the get smart TV series.
semi auto handguns aside from some sort of fucked up luger appear EXTREMELY rarely, and the only suppressed guns that are ever seen are revolvers.
I can't remember which movie this was, but
>bad guys in a skyscraper like a hundred stories up
>SWAT team rolls up, exits the van in high ready, run to the elevators in high ready, go up the elevators in high ready
it was like they were the real-life version of an FPS character model that doesn't have enough animations.
There are accounts of soldiers being picked up the shockwave of IED detonations and being perfectly unharmed. Extremely rare? Yes, but it can be done in the most perfect conditions.
That's why I said in the most perfect conditions. No sane man would recommend standing in the vicinity of an explosion and hoping to be in the just right spot to not be harmed. It has happened, but that's not justification to do it intentionally.
But movies make it look like a bomb can go off and if the fire doesn't hit you, you'll fly backwards, groan a little even if you pancake a car, and be ok. The thread is about shit from movies that bother you. Pointing out that there is an extremely slight chance of survival doesn't really matter.
>Get shot in shoulder
>Has shoulder in white bandage in next scene but is otherwise fine and still has full use of arm.
>If a tv show, next episode, completely healed
Remember, a shoulder is just a big sack of meat. There is no complicated joint underneath that muscle that will require a year of surgery and physical therapy to restore.
Post production sound effects guys are so low on the totem pole when it comes to salaries and shit, that it wouldn't shock me if they did it on purpose for the shits and giggles. Or some producer was like "WHERES THE CLINGYCLANK OF THE BULLET HITTING THE GROUND?!"
I hate when some asshole says, "well why didn't he just shot him in the leg?!"
It's called the femoral artery.
If you shoot people in the leg you're either an idiot or a sadistic fuck.
>every time someone so much as jiggles a weapon (not even a firearm, any weapon) it sounds like a 300-person chorus of idiots shaking tupperware containers of metal bits
EVERY FUCKING TIME
Also just manually cock in DA/SA guns as an intimidation technique. I guess it could be seen as putting it on a hair trigger but half the time I think they're relying on the audience assuming it couldn't fire until that happened.
Sound effects have to be post-synched because the audio captured on set is almost never satisfactory. It's like music, the sound is integral to the scene and without it the picture will feel very awkward and "empty." Swishing swords add weight and physicality to the action, and help the viewers track what's happening from shot to shot. Often it's desirable to have hyperrealistic sound design for these reasons.

gun "noises" like picking up an AR and it sounds like picking up a pile of metal pieces that are grinding against eachother
where the fuck did that even come from???
>once circulation has ceased
which is why you continue chest compressions, and keep blood flowing. Epi is typically mainlined into an IV if the patient is already tapped. If not, into the heart is also used.
They taught me to hide behind the wheels or engine. And if someone comes at the front of the car, got to the back. Most people shoot into the driver's seat even of it's not occupied. Heat of the moment and all that. But still, ut's a bad idea to count on the perp being a retard.
In 13 Hours, two operators are set up on top of a building. One has an M4, the other has an M249. The M4 guy turns to the machine gunner and says. "Is that thing loud? Because I forgot ear pro."
I'm hoping you're on the LEO's side?
And I know NYPD officers can choose between a Glock, Sig, or S&W I believe, all chambered in 9mm, but if you've been on the force for like 20 years, you can still carry the old .38 Specials. My friend just became a cop in my town. New officers are all issued Glocks in .45, while cops that have been on the force for a while either carry Glocks or Sigs.
Many and in fact most contemporary APMs (contemporary as in manufactured/designed after 1960) are pressure release triggered and spring loaded or use a booster charge so that when the person steps OFF of the mine, the charge is launched vertically to average adult male mid-chest height then detonates.
The mine you're thinking of is likely a blast mine that detonates when the person steps on it to blow off a limb
AEDs can convert V-fib/pulseless V-tach to a viable rhythm. It is not statistically common. Nor is it common for a manual defibrillator to do that. Most of the time, when a heart stops it stays that way.
My problem is that on TV, when a person is defibrillated, they immediately wake up and start sputtering and walk off. No. No, they don't do that shit. Generally, they don't even start breathing again on their own. If your brain goes without oxygen for any significant length of time, it's going to be pretty fucked up. Maybe forever. Nursing homes have lots of residents who went that route and are now drooling into their laps.
In almost two decades of work in EMS, I have seen two patients who "coded" and were revived with a full neurological recovery. Both were witnessed arrests with the defibrillated pads on their chests. They were defibrillated within seconds.
Everybody else was a varying degree of fucked.
Defibrillation is only to resync cardioversion, which v-fib is a unsynchronized form of. If there is no rhythm (asystole), then there is nothing to shock, period.
If the patient goes into asystole, you continue chest compressions and administer epi until the heart is restarted or time of death is declared. You don't shock a flatline, ever.
>on a helicopter in Vietnam
>"Fortunate Son" playing
I asked multiple combat Vietnam vets, none of them heard fortunate son playing as they went into combat. Yet every single movie depicts it blasting over speakers.
the icing on the cake is they lowered the standards in big cities with tall buildings and skyscrapers, places where you really need big burly men with swinging dicks who has to put up with running up a large flight of stairs in full firefighter gear.
If is like anything in the military, she'll be oblivious the entire time, get whatever she wants in regard to leave despite seniority, and be the first one to complain about doing actual work. Eventually will file sexual harassment complaint when she's passed over for promotion for someone who's been in the building for over a decade
As my mother told me (she is a doctor) they basically only use the defib on a code as an absolute Hail Mary, and literally they only do it on a code if family members happen to see it, because families ask the same damn "why didn't you defib them" question and get super pissy if you don't "try everything like da movies!!"
I worked in trauma for a short time, most of the time, the patient is far past gone and we usually defib 4-5 times more than necessary (also we usually hit them with enough epi to wake up a comatose elephant) if family is present so they don't sue our ass for not doing enough.
Doing 5 minutes of compressions when you know they're already dead fucking sucks.
